BACKGROUND

Keeping in view the current Pakistani educational system especially the limited higher education opportunities available in Pakistan, students seek International opportunities to enhance their careers.

The global financial crunch and the current recession calls for guiding our youth to achieve specialized skills & gain qualifications in niche subject areas.

The Professional Education Consultants through Representations of prestigious institutions of the world will help find students higher education prospects especially with scholarship/ financial support in various subject streams and institutions across the world.

The association will help & strive to gather Consultants of repute and professional status on one platform. It will help to weed out fake & scrupulous Agents charging huge amount of fees and misguiding the young student community of Pakistan.

The association will provide guidance & suggestions to Government Agencies to formulate rules & legislations to restrict that only professional & qualified people enter the business of education consultancy in Pakistan. All members of APECOP shall therefore be under oath to help & process genuine & bona-fide students and maintain quality/ standards of their services rendered against a nominal fees/ Administrative Charge for initial inquiry stage, admission processing, visa guidance, pre-departure orientation and on arrival assistance.

The members of Association shall not be seen only as commercial organizations or individuals but will understand the huge responsibility directly related to their profession affecting the career of prospects of not only one student but the entire Pakistani nation.
